There’s no reason that rich, cold and creamy cannot also be nourishing, clean and healthy. We long for the day when we can pick up a pint of coconut chlorella mint chip at any late night grocer, but until then, these superfood ice cream recipes work just fine.
We all love ice cream, but the cold stuff’s reputation for being either highly processed or packed with too much sugar qualifies it as an anti-beauty food. These recipes are the opposite. We’re hoping to get you hooked on the ‘ice cream every day’ diet with these clean, nutrient dense ice cream recipes. Don’t let the wild colors or unusual ingredients deter you, we’ve included a long list below of our top favorites and invite you to try one that suits your palate.
The first few recipes come from our summer shoot with Addictive Wellness co-founders AnnaBlanca and Sage. We tried all four in the period of a couple hours and were in a feel good mood afterward we can hardly describe. So many healthful ingredients in one big dose — we were calm, happy, energized, and turned on to these recipes for life…

The ingredients are so functional for our health we don’t mind a bit. Plus, the addition of this rich, nutty oil balances everything out. READ MORE
